start, stop background sound during video?

by mime2013 » Fri Nov 08, 2013 9:52 am

Is it possible when I start a video in the panorama that background sound stops and starts automatically when ready?

Thank's a lot,
Michael

You're talking about the background sound of the panorama/project or the video sound ?

I want to stop the panorama sound, when I open Video and start with own sound.

When Video finished, start panorama sound again. Is this possible?

If video is called from a plugin or a hotspot you can add action to stop sound (Actions : Interface control > stop tour sounds).
But the start again should be done manually via a control bar for instance at this time.

Better way for youtube video is to open via hotspot or plugin actions a webvideo box which have a close button.

No close button available on displayed objects (internal images and internal video).

But if I use a web video in a box with close button the "stop panorama" action will not work, am I right?


Ok Benjamin, thanks a lot for your advice. Hope deeply my topics will be found in the next update. :) Your software is great, very good work!

You mean the "Interface control > stop tour sounds" action ? It should work if not it's a bug to report to us.

Hello,

I'm working on this also. I have a video on the TV screen and I want the tour sounds stop when video is playing. I want also a description of the video spot displays. I did what you told and this is the result. See my setings in the screenshot.

When I go to the pano, the video starts automaticly but the project background sound still playing. It stops only if I click on the menu button but that way the video sound stops also as it stop all tour sounds. When I click on the video, the description displays and the video stops. Afther that, when I click on the description it goes away (hidden) but the video still stopped. Than to continue play the video I need to click on the it again. Now the video starts but the description is visible again and afther I click on, it goes away and now finally the video still playing (without sound of course).

The biggest problem here I think it is:
1) there is missing one action "stop project,current pano or group sound" because the "stop tour sound" stops all sounds of the tour including the video spot sound (same function assigned to the sound button in the menu)
2) interaction between description spot and video spot - afther the description displays the video stops and that is OK but when I click on he description to close it, the video needs to continue playing automaticly but it is not in my case and there are no setting to change that as I can see

Thank you for your attention, regards
Toni

Can you just tell me what you mean "reported". Is it already fixed somehow in Beta5 or will be in next version?
Thank you!

OK, what's going on with this feature? Can I expect it soon or ever in future. It is a must have action I really need as soon as possible:

Action: stop background sound

I want to use it in panos where I have a video spot. I want to listen only the video sound without the background sound.

There is another better way:
In the video spot style, afther directional sound can be added a checkbox:
stop background sounds when directional sound is playing
I think all users will check it because it is disturbing when you listen 2 sound at same time. But some users will maybe want that.
This function will cover both needs. Can I expect this to be done by Kolor team?
